Re: Newbie Rejection?
a screenplay by Drnkn Q. Mnky
Starring: (in order of apperance):
firstname.lastname@example.org as Dominik Adams email@example.com as (Other) firstname.lastname@example.org as iain email@example.com as hollis2 firstname.lastname@example.org as Jacob[FADE IN]
Scene: It is a normal Tuesday night in alt.fan.douglas-adams.
Various froup members are sitting around, chatting, reading, playing handball, eating corned beef, etc.
In walks DOMINIK ADAMS from THE SHADOWS (stage left).
I'm obviously new to the froup, but nobody bothers to ask me the SOD question. Should I feel rejected ?
Ok, ok, I'll return to the Shadows and keep on lurking.
OTHER: (to DOMINIK)
OK, Have you read the Salmon of Doubt? It's the best Douglas Adams book EVER!
If you don't believe me read the reviews on amazon.com
Do you feel better now?
I would like to point out that you showed up before I took the responsibility of asking about SOD.
And Welcome to the froup.
IAIN: (mumbling to himself)
far back in the ancient mists of time, when i was a new here, it was the newbie's job to ask about the Salmon of Doubt, not the other way around.
how times change!
HOLLIS:Can I nominate Mr D. Adams as the Best Newbie Name of the Month?
JACOB: (to HOLLIS)Yes, but we would need a script, so it would never actually come to anything.
1) What Jacob means here is a cgi script, to allow froupies to vote for Newbie of the Month.
Neither Colin nor I ever actually got around to writing one.
2) Carole thinks Oprah Winfrey should play her.
